Predicted to have actin filament binding activity. Predicted to be involved in actin polymerization or depolymerization and skeletal muscle tissue development. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including actin cytoskeleton; costamere; and cytosol. Is expressed in several structures, including exoccipital bone; gut; meninges; pharyngo-tympanic tube; and skin. Orthologous to human SVIL (supervillin).
